corned beef for two days on the trail! ..breakfast with eggs


Yes, that's the right combination, corned beef and eggs :D

I talked with a member today that will be really interested in this design concept. He lives in an area where there are many freight train travelers and helps them out at different times by giving them his DIY alchy stoves. If he uses the conical salmon cans that I had mentioned the stoves would work well for heating canned foods such as beans etc right in the can. Note that I say heat, not cook. The travelers need only to warm the food not make it hot hot. We're concerned about the coating inside the cans, right?

The conical stove will be one piece to have potstand built in.

Hey, NO Priming pan needed, bill will buy one..... ;)

The corned beef is already cooked so that "heating" idea wouldn't be a problem.Heat it in the can with another can stove.I think the can because it is tapered could make a nice small pot for coffee or whatever..Most people that 'ride the freights" aren't that concerned about can linings..
I brought up the stove idea here because it's a simple one that people can make anywhere..whether they are on a trail,hoppin' freights, or just need something in an emergency to cook anything..and it has a valuable food source inside..not jolt cola.. :lol:

Now that would fuel a true LTA stove - straight METHANE - generate your own fuel, why carry anything. :D

About a 4' hose and it could be "remote fueled" as long as he figures out how to keep the pressure up...might need a little priming though.. :o

Probably need some sort of filtration...You know "Bad fuel" can be hazardous. :DP:

Did you see the photo of the salmon can I posted? I put a machinist square at it's side so you can see the taper. the wider part is the top of the can. the label is upside down

Here is stove I made today. Used one soup can and one veggie can, no taper. exhaust wrap is in the walls. will do some test burns tomorrow.

You'll have to try one of the salmon cans..looks like a goodie! Because of the taper,you'll find that once you stuff the fiberglass or wick filler in the sides that the two pieces won't come apart..unless you pull that back out first.Make the outside about 3/4-1" shorter than the top for the potstand(duh :roll: ).
With a second salmon can also..if you make two cuts near the bottom,say 1/2" apart,the top becomes a pot(with the top intact and unopened turned upside down and the bottom say 1/4" high portion becomes the lid fitting barely over the top of the pot..perfect hobo-pot with using a second can..hmm..but the bottom of the pot,would fit down inside the potstand a little(non-tip?).I can turn a MC pot 90 degrees to the top of the MC stove because of its rectangular shape.
I hope they like salmon...
